I hate throwing any of my leftover papers out and seem to be collecting lots of little pieces of card stock and accents that I can't bear to get rid of.  Here's a little (3 3/4" x 2 3/4") card that could be used for a gift enclosure or a gift card holder. 

Pure Poppy card stock was embossed with a SU embossing folder called Petals a Plenty and then attached to a white card stock base. The circle image from Papertrey Ink's Holiday Tags 2010 was stamped twice - once with Close to My Heart Cranberry Ink and once with Memento Cottage Ivy (green). The center of the red tag was punched out using a 7/8" punch so that the green sentiment and holly image could show through. Three red rhinstones created the sparkly holly berries. 

Inside the card I stamped two sentiments from Amy R. Stamps: Winter Greetings.

What do you do with all of your leftover papers and accessories?

Thanks for visiting today.

I too hate trowing out little pieces. Have lots of folders with scraps as proof. Your gift enclosure is cute. The embossing folder really goes nice with the Christmas theme.
